PERFORMANCES

COMING UP:

 

Conducting performance of RAKE’S PROGRESS on 18., 22. and 24. June at THEATER BASEL. The last performance is also my last day of being an employee at this theater. Looking forward to the challenges and surprises of the free-lance life.

FINDING A LITERARY AGENT by performing at the PEDRITO exhibition Braswell Arts Centre, Basel from 11-16. June 2018. Details about performances and readings from my book can by found on the linked website. The book, PARAGRAPHS (not only) for PEDRITO, will be available in German and English with the prologue and list of the 26 chapters  translated into as many languages as my helpful team of translators have ready by 6.06.2018.

The beginning of the PROLOGUE: 

“This collection of  portraits of REAL WOMEN is my hommage and thanksgiving to all the PROUD BROADS* who have inspired me through the last five decades and kept my focus firmly on the silver lining – NO MATTER how many dark clouds threaten to suck the joy out of life.  From Day One my grandmother determined: every cloud has its silver lining.

These short vignettes (life sketches, vignettes/ word portraits) are Portraits of Events covering ground from Cape Town, South Africa to Basel, Switzerland  between MAY 1964 and May 2018 that PROUD BROADS*, experienced, wished, dreamed, grew out of the habit of and brought to the table.

*PROUD BROAD (German: VOLLWEIB) is a positive expression, in this context: a female being who daily discovers her femininity, expresses and defines it anew – with her iPhone in her bra and emancipation in the air.“
